    That poster at 3:47 is wicked! Never get artwork posters for horror films anymore!

    Evil Dead is classic! All of them – not seen the remake yet tho

    Thanks to use the french poster !!♡ (I am a huge evil dead fan too,it's a great part of my childhood,I prefer the second,but the first is a awesome history,sam raimi made the cityzen kane of the horror movies).
    And I was suspicious about the reboot…but it's ok,a nice movie.

    I love Evil Dead, such a fun, entertaining horror romp! its a movie that grows on you the more you watch it! Brilliant camera moves, campy humor, and crazy suspense! I love how the tension is very subtle but keeps building up to a crescendo of absolute insanity by the end

    Of course Dead by Dawn..Evil dead 2,after Army of darkness (96 minutes) and the first one with Within in the woods for the real story behind the movie (like Peter Jackson,Sam was a small director,a self made man.

    Check out "Equinox" if you want to see the real inspiration for "The Evil Dead"…

    this movie is terrible, I mean i love it but its not scary at all, the plot doesn't make scence, but it's fucking great it's unintentional satire looking back on it now but a fail when it came out, only thing redemable is what they managed to do to do with a low budget, I just laugh like hell trough out
